In this tutorial we are going to implement a stock price prediction model using a machine learning algorithm. stock price prediction model as the name suggests, It predicts the price of the stock based on the different parameters like Open, High, Low, Close, etc.

So, I have trained this model using a Multi-Linear Regression model. It’s a simple Linear Regression model and it gave me a 5% RMSE (Root Mean Squared Error).

*About dataset :-*

The dataset is taken from NASDAQ, AAPL - Apple Inc company. Apple Inc. and its wholly-owned subsidiaries (collectively "Apple" or the "Company") design, manufacture, and market personal computers, portable digital music players, and mobile communication devices and sells a variety of related software, services, peripherals, and networking solutions. The Company sells its products worldwide through its online stores, its retail stores, its direct sales force, and third-party wholesalers, resellers, and value-added resellers. *About dataset :-*

*Let's start :-*

*Let's start :-*

First of all, import all the required libraries like pandas, numpy, matplotlib, seaborn for data visualisation and EDA.

Then load an APPL data set using the read_csv method of pandas and display the top five rows of the APPL data set.

Now create two new features HL_PCT and PCT_change from the existing features or domain knowledge.Then display the top 5 rows of the dataset after creating new features.

Now create a new data set with several features which are used to train the stock price prediction model on the APPL data set and again display the to 5 rows.

Then again check that there are null values present or not in the data set.

Now it's time to prepare the data set. divide the data set into the dependent and independent features. X contains all the independent features and Y contains our target or dependent feature.

Now display the top 5 rows of X and Y data using the head() method.

Now split the data set into the training and testing using the train_test_split() method which takes some parameters like X, Y, test_size, random_state, etc. and returns 4 data sets: X_train , X_test , y_train , y_test.

And now check the shape of all the 4 data sets.

Now import the algorithm Linear Regression which is used to train the stock price prediction model and also load the Standard Scaler Which is used to normalise the data. It means that it converts the value into a particular range(0-1).

Now define the StandardScalar() and apply on the X_ train and X_test data set.

Now define the LinearRegression() model and train the model using the X_train and Y_train data set.

Now create a new data frame for comparing the actual and predicted data.

Load the Evaluation Matrix and check the mean absolute error, mean squared error and root mean squared error. As You can see the output in the below image.
